Software magic. Building a panoramic photo. 17 HDR photographs, each created with HDR Efex Pro2 using 3 images taken on Saturday, Oct 19th in the Cataloochee Valley.

Lightroom on the right monitor with the processed HDR images exported to Photoshope CC to merge them into a single panoramic image.

This would be more simple if I would buy PTGui... but I don't want to learn more software! I just want to work on my photos...

 

Day 295
Software magic. Building a panoramic photo. 17 HDR photographs, each created with HDR Efex Pro2 using 3 images taken on Saturday, Oct 19th in the Cataloochee Valley.

Lightroom 5 on the right monitor, Photoshop CC on the left.  First step, I export 3 photographs from Lightroom to HDR Efex Pro 2, and use the Balanced preset and save the resulting HDR image, importing it back into Lightroom.  Repeat 16 more times.  I then export the processed HDR images from Lightroom to Photoshop CC where they are merged into a single panoramic image.  There you have it, 30 minutes later... almost like Magic.

This would be more simple if I would buy PTGui... but I don't want to buy and learn more software! I just want to work on my photos.

And the resulting 220 Megapixel panoramic photo:
